Dustin Hoffman was a major dramatic force from the 60s-80: starring in 'Rain Man', 'Marathon Man', and 'Kramer vs. Kramer'. Oh, not to mention he vicariously satisfied many the teenage fantasy in 1967 classic 'The Graduate'.
'The Godfather', 'Apocalypse Now', 'The Last Picture Show' - has cinema reached these heights since? Make up your own mind, but only after you check out this collection of films nominated for the Oscars best-picture award during the 1970s.
This group of films follows stand-up comedians in their struggles with hecklers, overly bright stage-lights, and crippling depression. Make sure to check out Jenny Slate in 'Obvious Child' for a fine example of mumblecore-lite.
